Not yet, but Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul wants to be a father, and says he found the perfect woman to make it happen.
“Lauren [Parsekian] and I definitely want to have kids. No rush. All our future children will be very lucky to have her as a mother,” Paul, 33, told PEOPLE at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ Performers Peer Group Reception in Hollywood on Monday.
Asked if they’re still in the honeymoon phase, he replied: “Let me tell you, my friend, I will be in the honeymoon phase until I leave this planet. Getting married to Lauren was the greatest accomplishment of my life. I will be forever grateful.”
On the subject of the Emmys, Paul could win a third next month. But this year he’s rooting for costar Jonathan Banks, who famously played Mike Ehrmantraut on the AMC drama.
“I had my time up there,” he says. “It would be amazing to be called up again. But I want to see Jonathan Banks cry on stage. I guarantee he will. He plays such a tough guy, but he wears his heart on his sleeve. He’s a softie.”
